From Season 1 to Season 2 - Two Different Programs Altogether?,

This review is from: Breaking In Season 2 (Amazon Instant Video)
Season 1 was smart, quick, funny, and had a story line that slightly filled the void for us heartbroken "Chuck" TV series lovers. Somebody in the marble hallways made a grievous judgement error in focusing the plot from the action spy outside "Sting" movie-like world of Season 1, to the single room set of "Friends" in Season 2.
Poor Odette Anabelle. Leaves this to go to "House" and "House" bails out.
Christian Slater is far less effective as a second stringer to Megan Mullally, who is irreverent as ever in her near total recreation of her "Will & Grace" role. Christian needs to be the series top-dog and Megan's character would be better suited as some part of the team as opposed to its boss. Her character's ineptitude yet self aggrandizing power status is too reminiscent of many government officials.
The lighted two stars in the rating are for the actors doing a great job with almost nothing in Season 2 to work with while the unlighted three stars is because of the disappointing and uncalled for changes in the basic Season 1 premise, followed by passionless creativity within the writing of Season 2's revamped premise.
Somebody screwed up between seasons.
